Even though I haven't quite made it to the beach just yet this year, our new trio of bags with beautiful stripes have me craving all things seaside :)

I'm blaming the colours and textures, for I can't stop day-dreaming about packing them with beach towels, fresh fruits to keep me going during the day and snacks to enjoy as the sun goes down... *rummages the closet looking for espadrilles*

In grey, red and a beautiful sandy beige, these bags are made from cotton fabrics that would have been thrown away. As with all of our bags, they have the same handy pocket on the inside and have been finished with cotton seam tape, but we skipped on our iconic Bag For Change print to keep these models as simple and elegant as possible. We took these photos in London, but can't wait to see where you guys and girls taken them to!

Which one is your favourite?

Massive, plastic fail... right here

Just... watch the video and you'll see what I mean...

If you made it till the end of the video (first of all, thank you!), you've read that I'm not happy at all about this plastic packaging fail. I'm so incredibly disappointed at myself for not even thinking that the company I'm working with would do this. Very silly mistake with a very annoying consequence... Anyway, moving forward I shall always make sure that nothing gets sent to us in plastic again.

One Aware mag update - what's changing

Hi all!

I was going to write a long post about what changes we've made from issue 001 to issue 002, but I tend to overthink things when I'm writing, so I've quickly made this video instead! I hope it addresses all your questions and what you can expect from One Aware 002 Origins. And apologies in advance as it is just me talking to the camera, but if you guys enjoy this update on video I'll start using this medium more often and put more effort with an interesting edit.

Do comment with your thoughts, I'm always looking for your feedback
